Honey Whiskey Apple Cake

Honey Whiskey Apple Cake

This dang apple cake is a lot better than I thought it would be. Its really whiskey flavored without the booze factor because of the honey. And incredibly moist!! I hate that word but its just TRUE.

Chicken & Dumplings po Polsku

Chicken & Dumplings po Polsku

I love chicken & dumplings. It’s one of the most comforting and delicious dishes on this green earth. But when it’s bad, it’s awfully bad. I hate when it’s goopy-sauce-and-dry-gummy-biscuit porridge hell. This is none of that! The sauce is silky and light, and the dumplings are little puffs of floating dough.

Beer Braised Sauerkraut with Bratwurst Sausages

Beer Braised Sauerkraut with Bratwurst Sausages

And what better side dish to a couple of juicy and well-cooked bratwursts than onions and sauerkraut? No? Not for you? Let me ask you a question then. Have you ever had really good cooked kraut?

Vegetarian Baked Samosas + Raita Sauce

Vegetarian Baked Samosas + Raita Sauce

Making this dish taught me a lot about the true simplicity of base Indian ingredients and how they all work together to create the incredible symphony of flavor and aroma that I love so much on Devon Street.

Grilled Pizza

Grilled Pizza

Homemade pizza is incredibly inexpensive and so much more delicious than any takeout. It has been so hot that I’ve been dreading making dinner every night. I don’t want to go anywhere near the stove or oven, and there are only so many salads a person can eat. I had a hankering for pizza the other night, and I decided I’d try to throw it on the grill to see what would happen.

Grapefruit Sculpin Tomatillo Salsa

Grapefruit Sculpin Tomatillo Salsa

Although adapting a Rick Bayless recipe is akin to adding a few extra brush strokes to a Picasso, I happened to have a great IPA on hand that I thought would add a delicious extra bite.

Any Night Tacos

Any Night Tacos

Are they authentic? Not really. Are they freakin’ delicious? Absolutely! I’m a Polish lady making tacos – I really hope you weren’t expecting truly authentic. 

Soft Pretzels + 2 Dippings Sauces

Soft Pretzels + 2 Dippings Sauces

who knows what possessed me to make pretzels on a Wednesday afternoon a couple weeks ago. I guess it was because I had an entire pint jar of beer mustard hanging around and taunting me every time I opened the fridge.

Marinated Flank Steak

Marinated Flank Steak

What can you serve with this? Anything you want! The marinade doesn’t necessarily fit into any one flavor profile, so you could do whatever you wanted with it. Flank steak is great for tacos. Or throw it on a salad of mixed greens and tomatoes. To make lettuce wraps, just add a little hoisin sauce and top with pickled daikon and carrots.
